Breaking News! Capital Dancesport Championships is pleased to announce their new “Capital Dancesport… For The Cure” campaign for 2013. We have partnered with a new organization called the T.A.P. Project in association with the Alzheimer’s Association. As announced at their 2012 Alzheimer’s Association National Convention, there is now scientific proof that ballroom dance instruction slows the progression of those afflicted with Dementia and Alzheimer’s, and reduces the chances of developing either disease by a whopping 76% for those people who already participate in the activity on a consistent basis! The TAP Project, the brainchild of ballroom competitor Judith Simon and her instructor Andre Savenko, is a program of dance patterns and teaching techniques specifically developed to teach people with Dementia and/or Alzheimer’s. This groundbreaking program is already having a positive impact in its trial phase, and has been endorsed by the Alzheimer’s Association and the National Dance Council of America. Everyone entering a Compete for the Cure Championship can make their tax deductible entry fee check directly to “The TAP Project”. Anyone not participating in a Compete for the Cure event that wishes to make a donation can do so directly at the Capital Dancesport Registration Desk at the event, or via mail to our office in Amanda, Ohio. Capital Dancesport is proud to be associated with the TAP Project. We hope you will join us in supporting this worthy and wonderful cause. Keep Dancing Everyone!
